Humanity is at a crucial juncture in history where crises of immense scale demand urgent action.
It’s easy to overlook the urgency of the times, as the transformative capacity of scientific progress has created an illusion of sociocultural progress. While scientific darkness is in constant recession, the light of justice, sustainability and prosperity, is locked in constant conflict with the darkness of injustice, destruction, and destitution, for control of the world’s social systems.
The organic institutions of the world’s social systems determine the nature of societal outcomes. The failure of these institutions has caused a cultural crisis that is the underlying cause of the world’s staggering challenges.
Jiddu Krishnamurthi, observed that, “it is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” The sickness that plagues today’s society is the culture of blind passivity and civic disengagement that is promoted by broken social institutions that influence people’s educational experiences.
